Many organizations today have experienced the benefits of offering an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for their employees. Whether they have seen reduced absenteeism or increased productivity, these employers understand that a productive and resilient organization begins with a healthy workforce. EAP services assist employees who bring into the workplace interpersonal, home-life, legal, and financial problems and a whole host of social concerns that hinder their ability to be a productive member of the workforce. Organizations that offer a comprehensive EAP benefit provide an invaluable resource for employees to overcome both simple problems of daily living and those that are potentially debilitating and at times life threatening. Unfortunately, in an attempt to manage and reduce costs, many companies have decided to leave their comprehensive EAP provider for an EAP offered through a health insurance company, payroll management provider, or disability carrier.
